Fascinating compositions by Robert Jürjendal for unusual ensembles.

The history of the Five Seasons ensemble goes back to 2012 when Estonian composer and guitarist Robert Jürjendal heard a recording of the Corona Guitar Kvartet and contacted one of its members, Volkmar Zimmermann. Zimmermann initially asked Jürjendal to write a work for him and soprano Sara Fiil and their collaboration continued with the instrumentation expanding to the existing ensemble. The special membership of Five Seasons (acoustic guitar, soprano, trumpet, percussion, and electric guitar) encouraged Jürjendal to choose more academic writing, influenced by early guitar and lute music with the essence of romantic melancholy together with a complex contemporary harmony and sound conception. Five Seasons has appeared at Estonian Music Days to great critical acclaim.

Review:
"…Lastly, guitarist Robert Jürjendal's Five Seasons ensemble return with an immaculate self-titled album on Albany Records. It's a beautiful, beguiling set with a Renaissance/early classical sensibility, woven with vibraphone, French horn, lulling guitars and Sara Fiil's crystal-clear soprano. Gluck meets Hackett, perhaps?" (Prog Magazine)
